Pen(cil) Turning | Brown Mallee Burl Cigar Pencil with Chrome Hardware

In today’s video, I turn a Cigar pencil using Brown Mallee Burl wood and chrome hardware. This was a trickier one to turn. I found that the carbide chisels kept snagging. A couple of times, I stopped to fill some voids with CA. At the end, after it all came together, the click mechanism wasn’t working. After fiddling with it for a while, I figured out that the push rod(?) was slightly too short – I forgot to photograph the solution. Overall, however, I think this one turned out great. I love how this wood finishes, with the grain pattern becoming so prominent.
